You are going to be, probably, positive on the etG test
Here is a link that explains how it works and why it works
The typical time to remain positive after your last drink is about 80 hours.
What if I can put the test off until Thursday evening?
So this puts you somewhere right at the 80 hour mark
That would improve your chances for a negative test.
are you there?
The internet gives so many different reports on detection times. Does it depend on how much was consumed on Sunday?
in a way yes, but it does not depend on this the way the breathalyzer or the blood test does.
it does depend on the volume of alcohol consumed and the time between drinks
Well this is just a ETG test. How vaild is the 80 hours?
i'm not sure I understand
if the test is positive it is proof you consumed alcohol recently
it is not able to pinpoint the time of use
Some sites say 96 hours.. Is this true?
the reason that there is no clear answer is that people metabolize alcohol differently
everyone is unique
the test being positive also depends on 1. volume of alcohol consumed and 2. time between drinks
so it is impossible to say if 80 or 96 or 70 or 50 hours will be the positive window for you
How would I calculate that?
for safety sake, assume the higher
you can't, that's my point
you can only take the test
it is impossible to calculate whether it will be positive of not for any person
there are only averages
80 hours seems to be the time frame for most people
for heavy, frequent drinkers 96 might be closer to the truth
for occasional users less time to negative testing
I have not drank in a month. Saturday evening and Sunday have been the only days I have drank. Would I be considered a heavy user?
this would argue for a good chance that you wouldn't be someone who was positive at 80 hours
though if you drank to the point of severe intoxication all bets are off
Not severe but intoxicated.
again, we can only hope it is negative, simply no way to know unless you were able to take a test privately before the official one
have you looked into that option? there are commercial labs that will run any test for a fee.
Im not sure where to go. Seems like they all have to be sent out to a lab. I have to take the test tomorrow. Any thoughts?
my only thought is the later in the day you can get it the better your chances for a negative.
I can test in the evening around 7 pm. So from last drink Sunday at 10:30 pm to Thursday at 7 p.m what is that looking like for me?
that's looking like right at 90 hours if my math is good
a very good chance for a negative
That's not what I wanted to hear! haha
Well 90 hours is better than 80
not what you wanted to hear that it would likely be negative?
No negative is good.....n
yes, I agree
do you have any final questions for me about this?
Can I sleep tonight at 90 hours?
I don't understand the question
No....thanks so much and have a good evening
you do the same....
thanks for your question and good luck
positive feedback always appreciated.
